Lynn Fagerstrom moved to Colorado 34 years ago to chase her dream of being a ski bum; she discovered cycling as a means of rehab, after her first of three knee injuries. She bought her first bike and her dream was altered forever.
Riding the bikes was just not enough, however, she had to know how to maintain the bikes, fix the bikes and then build the bikes from the ground up. She began racing bikes at the age of 45 and currently races age group road races. She has participated in several editions of the LOTOJA which is a 206-mile, one day, road race from Logan Utah to Jackson Wyoming. She has also done several multi day, self-supported, mountain bike tours, in Colorado and Utah.
She retired from the airline industry, in 2010 and began working for REI, the outdoor retailer. She currently works as a bike tech, a master bike fitter and teaches maintenance classes at REI. In her spare time she also enjoys making custom silver jewelry in her home studio. Her passion for riding and teaching cycling skills is apparent and she loves being a mentor to other woman.
